"Full of humor and free of past conventions of pose and sexualization, Posturing: Photographing the Body in Fashion celebrates a new generation of photographers changing the nature of the industry's imagery. —Bojana Kozarevic, I-D (Vice). This exciting survey of 21 contemporary photographers who explode the stale tropes of conventional fashion representation came out of nowhere this year to revise the status quo. "Hay and Marshall explore how photographers have pulled away from using the body as a clothes horse, and begun seeing it as a powerful tool for expression," Sophie Bew writes in Wallpaper*, while Dazed's Lexi Manatakis asserts, "While the photographers make their mark in pushing the human form forward, viewers are challenged to consider the body’s role in the construction of a fashion image and its effect on the presentation of the garment itself."

Posturing

Edited by Holly Hay, Shonagh Marshall. Introduction and interviews by Shonagh Marshall.

Rejecting hypersexualized glamour, Posturing celebrates aesthetic oddness

A book about a new movement in fashion photography, Posturing shows how 21 contemporary fashion photographers use the body and its positioning to tell new stories in new ways. Through 58 photographs, plus interviews with photographers, stylists, set designers and commissioning editors, Posturing shows how this trend is changing the way that fashion is presented.

Edited by Holly Hay, photography director at Wallpaper, and fashion curator Shonagh Marshall, Posturing celebrates aesthetic oddness in a style of photography that rejects the hyper-sexualized body and celebrity-driven, glamour-obsessed vision of fashion that has glorified naked consumerism. This is a style that is changing traditional ideas of clothing, casting and images, also recontextualizing what the body means to fashion, and what fashion can mean to the body. Posturing is a record of that change and this new movement, capturing the voices and visions of those most integral to creating it.

Photographers include Andrea Artemisio, Bibi Cornejo Borthwick, Blommers & Schumm, Brianna Capozzi, Casper Sejersen, Charlie Engman, Charlotte Wales, Coco Capitán, Estelle Hanania, Hanna Moon, Johnny Dufort, Joyce Ng, Lena C. Emery, Mark Peckmezian, Marton Perlaki, Pascal Gambarte, Reto Schmid, Suffo Moncloa, Tim Elkaïm, Tyrone Lebon and Zoë Ghertner.

Celebrate Fashion Week NYC with the game-changing photography in 'Posturing'

Charlotte Wales' "Pop" (Spring/Summer 2016) is reproduced from Posturing, SPBH Editions' new collection of game-changing fashion photography by the up-and-coming generation of photographers, stylists and models who are approaching the body in all sorts of liberating, future-oriented ways—"celebrating aesthetic oddness." The photographs "are a lens through which to see new ways of thinking about race, age, gender, politics, and even the economics of a global industry. They give us a new way to understand what fashion can mean—and in doing so give us the chance to think again about where we are going." continue to blog
